Blitz, a GES company, supplier of audio-visual equipment and services to the live events industry, has secured a multi-year deal with industry-leading event venue, Manchester Central.
Following a competitive tender, Manchester Central awarded a new preferred supplier contract to Blitz, placing the company as the UK’s premier venue supplier following contract extensions with both Olympia and ExCeL London, late last year.
Blitz will continue to deliver a range of technical on-site event services – including sound, lighting, video, graphics and staging – and will also invest in enhancing the venue’s purpose built auditorium. The new contract also enables Manchester Central to offer the full range of GES services, providing clients with an ‘end-to-end’ event solution.
Angie Robinson, CEO of Manchester Central said, “We have a fantastic working relationship with the team at Blitz and we’re delighted to be continuing this relationship throughout the next three years. Blitz has shown true commitment to investing in Manchester Central’s offer to ensure that we continue to collaboratively deliver some of the world’s leading events.”
Blitz’s group commercial director, Graham Pope, said, “Our partnership with Manchester Central has flourished since it began in 2008. The on-site Blitz team at Manchester Central has grown in strength, with an experienced team of six, consisting of technical production managers, project managers and technicians. We are delighted to be continuing this relationship, and we will continue to reinforce Manchester Central’s position as a world leading venue”
